Well it is definitely time to bust out that propane grill for the warmer seasons, if you don’t use it all year long. You might take it out and think to yourself, “this could use a serious scrubbing!” And you are more than likely right! Even if you scrape your grates after every use there is going to be a big build up underneath those grate. Not only can that be pretty rancid but it is also dangerous. In fact, having a ton of build up on you grill increases the chances of having a fire significantly. Plus, if you have had it in storage all winter long there is a good chance that there is a lot of dust and possibly spider webs or even nastier things. So just do yourself a favor and scrub that grill to a shine.
